In Otter News: A cake for The Lift’s 1st birthday

In Otter News: Happy Birthday to the Otters!

Agate and Ore celebrate their 10th birthday at the Great Lakes Aquarium.

Every year for their birthday, the Great Lakes Aquarium otters get an ice cake.

But this year, Agate and Ore got a bonus cake in honor of The Lift’s 1st birthday.

“I made them a special cake for today,” Natalie Riemer, a senior animal care specialist, said. “It is a miniature Lift Bridge made out of silversides and a little piece of capelin.”

She put it on a raft in the otter exhibit, then let the 10-year-old sisters loose to snatch up the fish. The snacks were gone in a matter of minutes.
